Saint Bartholomew Cathedral, Frankfurt

On our way to the Römer, we passed by the Saint Bartholomew Cathedral. Saint Bartholomew was an apostle and in this church they keep a relic of his scull. The church was build in the 14th century but also completely destroyed during World War II. In 1950, this 95m high church was rebuild. The interior is sober but the art pieces are heavily decorated. The organ is extremely large.

Op weg naar de Römer, zijn we de Sint Bartholomeus kathedraal gepasseerd. Sint Bartholomeus was een apostel en in deze kerk wordt een stukje van zijn schedel bewaard. De kerk werd gebouwd in de 14de eeuw maar was ook volledig vernietigd gedurende Wereldoorlog II. In 1950 werd deze 95m hoge kerk opnieuw opgebouwd. Het interieur is sober, maar de kunstwerken zwaar gedecoreerd. Het orgel is enorm.
